This 4-H and FFA Junior Dairy Doe Replacement Project was started in 2002, and has been patterned after the Humboldt County Dairy Heifer Replacement Project. The purpose of this project was to enable members to raise quality dairy does and promote the dairy goat industry in our area. Many of the does in this sale would not be offered for sale except for the purpose of helping youth members learn about raising dairy does.

      When the members buy these does, they sign an agreement to properly raise, care for, and sell the doe at this sale. In addition, the members are encouraged to campaign these does on the dairy goat show circuit to create more exposure for this project and the sale. The sale feature of this project allows members who have no facilities for milking does to raise the dairy doe. It also insures the cooperating breeders and dairies have a chance to buy back their top animals.

       This is an excellent opportunity for dairies and breeders with show strings to add top quality does to their herds, and youth members to learn more about the dairy goat industry.
